According to the bill, a two-tier system would be implemented that would allow a party that polled 3% for the United States Senate or governor in the last election or that has at least 3,000 registered members. The parties would then nominate their candidate by convention. Currently, to be a qualified political party, that party has to have polled 4% of voters in the previous election for senate or governor.
